From the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Eastern Kulin Nations, Next Wave is privileged to traverse the land and waterways of this continent of many nations – to share in the act of art making and culture building – grounded on justice, friendship and care. This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
Next Wave welcomes everyone to our venue.
If you have an appointment to meet us at Brunswick Mechanics, 270 Sydney Road, please ring the doorbell (positioned next to our front door) to be let in. Our offices, theatre and meeting room are on the ground floor, and there are accessible and gender neutral toilets.
Brunswick Mechanics is a wheelchair accessible venue, with an accessible bathroom. The venue operates all on one level. There are no stairs, steps or lifts within the building, however flooring can be uneven in places.
We encourage masking when visiting Brunswick Mechanics and have masks available for anyone who may need during their visit.
Accessible entry to the building is via the front door, which has a ramp to its right (if viewing from Sydney Road.). This is the main entrance and exit to the building for all patrons.
General permit parking is available in the carpark directly behind the venue with entry located on David St.
The car park permit hours of operation are 8am – 5pm. Parking after 5pm is free.
There are 2 x wheelchair accessible parking spaces located at the corner of David St andx Glenlyon Rd, and another 2 x wheel chair accessible parking spaces located a little further down Glenlyon Rd, in front of the Brunswick Community Health Centre.
If navigating to the venue entrance from these parking spaces, you’ll need to head back up Glenlyon Rd (towards Sydney Road), in order to enter the venue.
For further information on parking permits and a list of wheelchair accessible parking spaces in the Moreland district, please visit the Moreland City Council website.
We also welcome suggestions for how we can continue to improve our experience for people with disability.
